When Kinsey's elderly (and grumpy) next door neighbor falls and needs in-home nursing care, Solana Rojas is hired. She is pleasant, caring, and attentive to her patient. Yuh, right. Solana Rojas is not her real name. She's fleecing, then killing her patients. Slowly Kinsey figures out that something not-quite-right is going on, and Solana retaliates. She's a tough cookie. I enjoy the details in Grafton's writing - even unnecessary details help set the stage. And I love the relationship between Kinsey and her octogenarian landlord, Henry. There are a couiple of side stories happening as well, and Kinsey does some interesting sleuthing. Entertaining story...but a very troubling one. I guess you just never know what's going to happen in life....
